WHAT IS GLAUCOMA ?
Glaucoma is an eye disease in which eye pressure raises which causes damage to the nerve sited in the back of the eye (optic nerve) and leads to loss of eyesight. At first, side (peripheral) vision is lost. If glaucoma is not treated, vision loss might continue, leading to complete blindness over time. At The Sight Avenue, we aim to give our patients optimal care and treatment options for Glaucoma from the best glaucoma specialists in Delhi.
TYPES OF GLAUCOMA
OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA (OAG)
Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is the worlds second largest cause of blindness. In open-angle glaucoma, the optic nerve is gradually impaired, generally causing gradual loss of vision. Both eyes can be affected simultaneously, although one might be affected more than the other. At times, much of your eyesight can be affected before you observe a change.
CLOSED-ANGLE GLAUCOMA (CAG)
In closed-angle glaucoma(CAG), the colored portion of the eye i.e. iris and the lens block the movement of fluid between the chambers of the eye, triggering pressure to build up and the iris to push on the drainage system (trabecular meshwork) of the eye. It might cause unexpected hazy vision with pain and redness, typically in one eye first; symptoms might also include nausea and vomiting. A related type, acute closed-angle glaucoma, is often an emergency scenario and needs instantaneous medical care to prevent perpetual impairment to the eye.
Congenital glaucoma is a rare type of glaucoma that is present in some babies at birth. Glaucoma that develops during the first few months of life is called infantile glaucoma. Babies with congenital or infantile glaucoma generally have cloudy eyes that are sensitive to light and have unwarranted tearing. Symptoms might not develop until 6 months to 1 year after birth. If the issue is not identified early and treated, the child might have severe vision loss and might go blind.
GLAUCOMA SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS?
